Einhorn Attorneys Co-Author New Jersey Law Journal Article “Retirement, Alimony and the Equitable Distribution ‘Double Dip’”

March 4, 2024

The New Jersey Law Journal published “Retirement, Alimony and the Equitable Distribution ‘Double Dip’” co-authored by Einhorn Barbarito partner Matheu D. Nunn who is co-chair of the firm’s Family/Matrimonial Practice and Appellate Practice, Einhorn Barbarito associates Alyssa DeFuria, Jessie M. MillsLinda Torosian, and attorney Alyssa S. Engleberg.

The authors discuss whether an alimony payor can be forced to use assets that were distributed in equitable distribution as a source of income to continue to pay alimony after retirement. For a majority of people, the initial reaction is no, because it would be a “double dip,” but the issue is more complicated and unclear.

The article provides several principles and examples regarding alimony factors to consider and discusses New Jersey statutes involving standard of living, retirement benefits, business ownership, 401(k) contributions and more.
